Abstract

The fertility of the soil is decreasing day by day due to cultivation of only rice and wheat as they have high nutrient demand. So, the inclusion of pulses crops in the cropping system will not only reduce the degradation of soil fertility with lesser use of chemical fertilizers. These crops also improve the nitrogen content of soil through nitrogen fixation by root nodule formation. Even, the pulses have high nutritive value which is important for better human health and low risk crops, their inclusion in the cropping pattern will be a boost for farmers’ income for that proper steps need to be taken by the government and extension officers to encourage farmers by providing adequate quantity and quality of seeds along with improved technology for legume cultivation.
